W.J. Jeffery & Co. London sidelock with wonderful and realistic engraved dog scenes

W.J. Jeffery & Co. London sidelock with wonderful and realistic engraved dog scenes: Hammerless Sidelocks – Check out the engraving on this gun. Built between 1904 and 1906 it is highly unusual to have realistic dog scenes engraved from this period. Beyond the wonderful engraving this gun features very nice marbled English walnut and an extra Purdey hidden third bite. The barrels have some light pitting on the outside of the left barrel that could be removed with a restrike and black. Probably the result of being put away in a damp case. The gun is tight on face and field ready. Manufacturer: W.J. Jeffery & Co. London sidelock with wonderful and realistic engraved dog scenes.

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga
Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga

Belgian Browning Super Light Superposed 20 Ga: Consigned to Cole’s is this very nice Belgian Browning Superposed Super Light in 20 ga with 26-inch barrels.  The shotgun bears serial # 223PW02990.  The bores are excellent.  The upper barrel is choked Mod (**) and the lower is choked IC (**-).  This shotgun weighs in at 5lbs 14 oz, a true super lightweight.  The shotgun has a long tang, straight grip.  The LOP is 14 ¾” and terminates with a Decelerator recoil pad.  The stock has various minor nicks and dings from days afield.    The gun is nice and tight and there is no looseness to be found open or when in battery. The bluing is just starting to flake from the bottom of the receiver from carry.  Some very minor loss of factory finish is observed along the tang as well.  Again, this from honest use pursuing dove and quail.  One of the best I have seen or found out here in a very, very long time. Price: $4650

The overall condition of this gun is very good to excellent rating in the 90% range. It has magnificent case hardened scalloped coloring enhanced by intricate engraving patterns and a blue finish on the frame, boxlock, lever and breech areas. The hardwood checkered Wales type grip and forearm are distinct and show very little ware. The top lever and boxlock plate also show fine engraving patterns adding value to this gun. Lock up is tight and the trigger mechanics are crisp. Overall the bluing is very uniform on both barrels with the possible exception of some very small age spots on the right side barrel. The stock shows some limited handling marks on one side which is to be expected for a field grade gun of this age. Overall it was well cared for over the years and is a very collectible firearm. Excellent value in this price range. Manufacturer: Zoli & Rizzini, Model: A&F Field Grade.

Browning BSS Sporter in 20 Gauge w/ Browning Luggage Case
Browning BSS Sporter in 20 Gauge w/ Browning Luggage Case

Browning BSS Sporter (Straight Grip) in 20 Gauge, 28″ barrels w/ Browning Luggage CaseIt would be hard to find a nicer and more desirable Browning BSS side by side than this one!  This 20 gauge “Sporter” model was made in 1979 and is as nice as they come.  It comes complete with the original dark brown Browning hard sided luggage case with the owner’s manual and latch keys.  It has 28 inch barrels which is the longest length that Browning offered in this model, and they are the hardest length to find.  This model BSS also features a straight English style grip, a single selectable trigger, automatic ejectors, and a oil finished walnut stock with checkering on the wrist and forearm.  The Browning factory blue finish on the metal parts rates a conservative 98% and looks minty.  Only under very close examination can you find anything to deduct some percentage points.  The original factory stock set is in excellent condition and could pass for being made last week!  The checkering is still sharp and it has not been altered in any way.  The Browning butt plate is in excellent shape, and the shotgun pulls 14 & 1/4 inches.  The condition of this Browning is nearly perfect and looks like it was never used or carried in the field.  These BSS models have a reputation for being durable and nicely fit and finished.  Not only are they a very attractive and classy double gun, they handle well in the field and have great balance.  We share the opinion of many that you can’t buy a nicer double for the money than this model, and we think it would be next to impossible to find a BSS in any better condition than this one.  Price: $2,150

Here’s a great deal on a very nice little double. Abercrombie & Fitch imported these Anson & Deeley style boxlocks in the 1960s and maybe in the ’50s, too. These guns were made in Italy by Guido Rizzini, his brothers, and another Italian gunmaker named Rinaldo Zoli. They’re simple, solid doubles, built on one of the finest side-by-side actions ever created.

This one is in the most versatile gauge ever (12), it’s the perfect weight for upland hunting (6 1/2lbs), it has nice, modern dimentions (14.25″ LOP, 1 1/2 DAC, 2 1/4″ DAH), and it’s cheap  — just $749.99. Oh – and it also has 28″ bbls, 2 3/4″ chambers, and great chokes (IC & M). Honestly, I don’t know why I’m telling you guys about it. I should just buy it for myself.

Here’s the info on the gun from the seller:
